R+B heart-throb Usher is single again after splitting with his model girlfriend EISHIA BRIGHTWELL.

The Yeah?! singer recently ended his one-year relationship (begsAUG04) with the beauty, who was formerly engaged to rapper and PIMP MY RIDE host Xzibit.

When asked by the New York Daily News this month (NOV05) if he was still dating Brightwell, Usher replied, "No."

In July (05), Usher admitted he was under pressure from Brightwell to propose, saying, "Don't put any more pressure on me than she has, man. We've been dating a while, but you've got to give us a little time."

Now he's single again, Usher declares he isn't looking for his future wife just yet.

He explains, "I am not necessarily looking for 'wifey' right now - a number one lady. I am looking for a companion. A friend with benefits, to have a good time with, to go places with, to enjoy life and get to know each other."
